A Vigorous Defense For Federal Identity Theft Charges

Identity theft is a crime involving the use of another individual’s identity, usually to gain access to that person’s bank and credit card accounts or to open new accounts in that person’s name. Since identity theft often involves the use of computers and the Postal Service, prosecutors often attach additional federal charges related to the use of a communication device (cybercrime or wire fraud) and the Postal Service in the commission of a crime (mail fraud). As a result, people accused of identity theft often face multiple charges. The federal crime of aggravated identity theft, which requires the use of at least two fraudulent identification documents, carries a mandatory two-year consecutive prison sentence, meaning that each count of conviction will add two years to the sentence imposed for the other charges.

Facing Allegations Of Identity Theft

There are many identity theft techniques, including:

  • Dumpster diving, which ­is when a person rummages through garbage cans or communal trash bins to obtain copies of checks, credit card or bank statements, or other records that typically bear sensitive information such as names, addresses and telephone numbers
  • Retrieving or intercepting another’s mail, most typically applications for pre-approved credit cards, which are subsequently activated without the knowledge of the individual
  • Stealing personal information in computer databases or through unsecured Wi-Fi networks
  • “Phishing,” is when an individual obtains personal data by impersonating a trusted organization in an email

With enough identifying information about an individual, a person can assume another individual’s identity to conduct a wide range of crimes, such as false applications for loans and credit cards, fraudulent withdrawals from bank accounts, fraudulent use of telephone calling cards or gift cards, or obtaining other goods or privileges.
